Billy Connolly's Route 66 (2011) Trailer
Trailer for Billy Connolly's Route 66.
Billy takes the ultimate road trip as he travels the world's most famous highway, Route 66.
From the all-new ITV1 series, produced by Maverick Television, Billy Connolly's Route 66 sees Billy turn Easy Rider as he follows a lifelong dream and makes the iconic 2488 mile journey from Chicago to Santa Monica. Route 66 is the embodiment of the American Dream. Millions have travelled its epic trail from the skyscrapers of Chicago and St Louis, through the Wild West badlands of Oklahoma and Texas, the Grand Canyon and deserts of New Mexico and Arizona, to the beaches of the Pacific and the excesses of LA.
Set to a soundtrack of some of the best American music of the 20th century, Billy also brings his banjo along for the ride. With his unrivalled ability to tell a great story, he brings to life both the big and small moments of American history: the world changing events and the comic asides.
